Perlas Pilipinas, the women’s national basketball team, battles two tough foreign teams in the 2nd Discovery Women’s Basketball Invitational from Aug. 22 to 25 in Naga City. Australia Gold Coast and the Singapore women’s national team are expected to give Perlas a stern test as they prepare for the Fiba Asia Women’s Championship in October and the Southeast Asian Games in December.
